"MHMR Early Childhood Services - ECI and MUCH More"
Early Childhood Services (ECS), a division of My Health My Resources of Tarrant County, is known in the community for its largest program, Early Childhood Intervention (ECI). With the goal of supporting all families with young children ages 0 to 6 at key points in their lives, ECS and community partners have initiated several evidence-based programs over the past few years in North Texas. Join us as we discuss ECS programs, including Family Connects North Texas, a free short-term nurse home visiting program offered to parents of newborns; Parent Café’s, guided conversations for caregivers with child care provided; and Sib Shops, community-based groups building resiliency in siblings whose brother or sister lives with IDD.
